About The Coffee Producer
The Peruvian coffee industry is in the midst of a renaissance. It seems that every passing year is marked by higher and higher quality Peruvian coffee.
This coffee is produced by the female members of the Chirinos Cooperative. Chirinos was established in 1968 by 36 farmers seeking to pool resources to produce high quality coffee.
The cooperative suffered from the dissolution of the International Coffee Agreement in 1989 and then by the 1992 coup that resulted in a new government that quickly implemented neoliberal economic policies that simultaneously increased tax burdens while deregulating prices.
The group has since reorganized and membership numbers have swelled to 867 farmer-members. The group shares the expertise of an agronomist who advises members on the production and application of organic fertilizers, techniques to mitigate the impacts of pests and disease, and methods for producing delicious coffee.
Coffee produced by members of the collective is hand picked, which ensures that only ripe coffee cherries are selected. The coffee is then milled and dried in the sun over a period of several days.
